Becky is a dancer and choreographer making work that sits between dance and performance art. Her training began in Tae Kwon Do and Hip Hop, before later discovering Contemporary Dance and Capoeira. In recent years she has been developing her own choreographic works which infuse these practices. As a dancer she has worked with Marianne Elliot for Angels in America at the National Theatre; Marion Motin (France); Company Decalage; Holly Blakey; Ragner Kjartansson and Eddie Peake at the Barbican to name a few.


In 2018 Becky was a DanceXchange Choreography Award recipient and was commissioned to create a new work, Ruby, on the CAT Dance Generation students in Birmingham.

 
Creations of her own work include; Rodadoras supported by Arts Council England; Like Honey; Severed Dreams which was later commissioned by Tony Adigun for The Factory at Dance Umbrella 2015. Becky was one of four choreographers collaborating with Hofesh Shechter on East Wall in 2018, an outdoor dance performance at the Tower of London, produced by East London Dance and Hofesh Shechter Company.


Becky also teaches nationally and internationally for dancers of all ages and abilities, from youth dancers to professionals and inclusive dance groups.
